Volunteer Week

Each year in May, Council celebrates the valuable contribution volunteers make to our community.

This year Council introduced the Community Champions: Changing communities |Changing Lives initiative to recognise not only our volunteers but individuals, neighbours and community groups who have shown compassion, kindness and a helping hand to people in their communities during times of need.

Many beautiful, encouraging and heart-warming stories were shared with us. Council will continue to recognise the contribution Community Champions make and will be celebrating all together with the nominees once we are able to in person.

Council wishes to thank all community members who took the time to nominate their towns community champion and of course thank each of the nominees. 

We invite you to read each of the community champions stories below;
